Meeting our new buddies

Elmhurst School for Boys

22nd September 2017 | Early Years

  

The beginning of the new academic year is when the newest and youngest of our Elmhurst family, in Reception and Little Elms, meet their buddies in Year 6. 

The buddy system is designed to give our younger members a friend that they can rely on to help integrate them into school life. It is also an opportunity to give the oldest boys the chance to have more responsibility and be good role models. Most of our boys have met their buddies already and some of the boys are lucky enough to have two buddies at the moment.

Here's what some of the boys said about their buddies:

Siddhi (Year 6):

"Being with Zachery is fun and exciting because we play chasing games in the playground. I enjoy looking after him because I teach him how to play and he looks up to me as a role-model."

Amesh (Year 6):

"I really enjoy having Zachery as a buddy because we will build up a strong relationship over the year. He is growing more confident every day, not just with Siddhi and I, but with his class mates. I think he enjoys having Siddhi and I as buddies and I hope he enjoys his time at Elmhurst."

Kiran (Year 6):

"Darsh is a really fun person to play with. He’s always smiling and looks up to me. I help him by giving him small rewards to help him do the right thing."

Aayan (Year 6):

"Darsh is really energetic. I’m learning how to teach him table manners and how to play nicely with his friends. It’s not that easy as it takes him time to settle down in the hall because it’s all new to him. But I am enjoying it a lot."
